    Come into the kitchen. I spend most of my time there now.

    Come into the kitchen. I spend most of my time there now.


    The above is taken from COLLINS COBUILD ENGLISH USAGE in the entry of 'there'. Could I ask if the first sentence means 'Come(=Go) into the kitchen with me'? And does the present simple tense of 'spend' mean that 'I spend most of my time in the kitchen every day'?
